Last week my daughter turned nine. I cannot believe we are almost in the double digits!

We had her pool party on Saturday, a fun Monster High themed birthday. The cake turned out amazing, as did the decorations. Take a peek at my post here for photos. 

Also, in a prior Wordless Wednesday, I mentioned that I use a Frosting that is Light and Not Too Sweet, and many of you wanted the recipe. I posted it yesterday, so make sure to check it out

  1. My 2-year old’s second name is Isabella. Happy Birthday little girl ;o)

  2. She looks just like you. Stunning. I hope her birthday was wonderful.


  3. Happy Birthday! 9 is a great age – old enough to hold a conversation but young enough to still be a kid.

  4. Happy Birthday Isabelle, what a great party!! She sure looks like you!!

  5. Happy Birthday to your daughter! 9 is a really great age… old enough to be somewhat independent but young enough to still be a kid and need a mom! Have a great year with her!

    1. She desperately wants to be a MH character for Halloween. But, I find the costumes too skimpy, esp for our Canadian Fall. Know of any …. ‘longer in the skirt’ ones?

    1. I can see it too Deborah, but haven’t decided if that’s a good thing. She definitely has my attitude though!

  6. Nine years old!! I hope that your daughter had a lovely and special day! It is so hard to believe isn’t it…I can’t believe that my daughter is 25! Enjoy it while you still can 🙂

  7. Yeah I can’t believe my little man will be 7 THIS Saturday! Where does all the time go?! Love the bday decorations!

  8. looks like her birthday was a success great party I really sucked at doing parties, only good thing I had were the loot bags.

  9. NINE?! Wow! She’s growing into such a beautiful young lady! Great job on the party! 🙂

  10. Oh my gosh she is SO pretty. I hope she had a wonderful birthday! My oldest is going to be nine in April and I didn’t even think about how close that is to double digits until you pointed it out. Now I feel like I’m going to vomit. BAH!
